Nicely Noted August 2018 Review
There’s a brief intro note from Nicely Noted’s founder, Perry. And there’s an info card with details on each maker:
Now, on to the cards!
You Are My Sunshine – Retail Value $5
This bright card is going to my mom! She’s the best, and I need to send her more “just because” cards so this is perfect.
Sunshine Smile – Retail Value $5.00
Nicely Noted suggested using this as a sympathy card to wish the recipient sunnier days ahead. I like the sentiment, but I’m not sure a smiling card is appropriate for a sympathy card? But this card is a good general use card, too.
Desert Birthday – Retail Value $5
I can always use more birthday cards and this desert landscape is a fresh new take!
Postage Stamps – Retail Value $1.50
Each Nicely Noted package also comes with stamps to mail your letters! This is a small but nice touch and makes me so much more likely to send fun, unexpected mail because I’m totally 100% prepared.
Verdict: Nicely Noted is a lovely little subscription if you love to send real mail, like to support independent artists, or if you like letterpress cards in particular. This subscription is perfect for making sure I always have the appropriate card on hand and encouraging me to send more mail in general!
To Wrap Up:

Value Breakdown: For $20, we got $17 worth of stamps and cards. If you value the curation of this box and the reminder to send real cards every month, then I think the $3 difference could be worth it!
